HAVE YOU EVER SEEN AN ITALIAN WATER CIRCUS?
OUR BRAND NEW SHOW IS WAITING FOR YOU IN
Cedar Rapids…. May 22-24!
Get ready for an experience that will take you far, far away to the wonders of Italy and the magic of an immersion into its culture. And into water! Yes, you heard well. Our circus features a 35,000 gallons water stage! Isn’t that crazy? We’re like no other circus in the United States, you can be sure- and we take pride in our uniqueness.
During the show, you won’t believe your eyes when the lid lifts up to 35 feet in the air while a CURTAIN OF RAIN AND FOUNTAINS GLISTEN WITH EACH PERFORMANCE MOVE!
Indeed, our show wouldn’t be the same without our artists’ spectacular performances! We have artists from all over the world that will make you feel like a child again, keep you entertained and craving for more! Don’t forget the atmosphere you’ll be able to experience. You’ll feel like you’ve been transported to Italy! Authentic Italian tradition and origins is what characterizes us, starting from our founder and inspirator, Manuel Rebecchi. As the nephew of Moira Orfei, the owner and soul of the most famous circus in Italy, Manuel can truly say that the circus runs in his blood. He knows this industry and world like no other! His passion, knowledge and entrepreneurial spirit have all combined to make of this show an experience to remember for a lifetime. “I want to see people have fun, enjoy the show, and go out with a smile and the desire to come back!” says Manuel.
Cirque Italia is now celebrating its third birthday, so we can say we’ve achieved Manuel’s dream! The team is always striving to make the show even more spectacular. Chante DeMoustes, our COO and producer who’s indefatigable in bringing innovation, has welcomed brand new acts and classiness to our show! Cirque Italia brings performers with unique talent, and is also an animal-free show. This is for those who may wonder what type of circus we are.
For 2015 tour, Cirque Italia decided to bring new locations apart of the tour. Hawkeye Downs and Cirque Italia both agreed that the venue was good fit. Cirque Italia has pledged to donate a portion of the proceeds to Hawkeye Downs to be used for grandstand restroom and lighting improvements. “These improvements would not be possible without the controbution and support of this orginization,” stated Roy Nowers, Executive Director of Hawkeye Downs. “We are looking forward to hosting an amazing event at our facility for the people in our community.” Get ready for something special Cedar Rapids! Cirque Italia is bringing VEGAS to your backyard! You will experience world class athletes with the collaboration of circus arts and performing arts around a custom 35,000 gallon water stage all under Italian circus BIG TOP tent!
Get ready for THE MUSICAL CLOWNS which are our show animators. They display a wide variety of musical slapstick and side-splitting comedy! And how about the VERTICALI ACT all the way from Italy? Wouldn’t you like to hear our artist sing Andrea Bocelli while performing UPSIDE DOWN? Then, are you ready to see the optical illusion and hypnotism of our LASERMAN ACT? Watch the laws of physics crumble when the performer actually “holds” a beam of light in his hand, splits it into two, then bends it and wields it like a saber of light! And more magic in the air with the TWIN SAILORS cause mischief with the audience, and perform the DUO AERIAL RING! Children of all ages will be eager for our spectacular MERMAID, emerging from her shell and swimming through the fountains! Hey girls and guys, do you know that she will be delighted to take pictures with you too? This is merely a description of what you’ll see and experience! ACROBATIC POLES, HIGH ENERGY JUGGLING, even DARK MAGIC AERIAL TISSUE and more await you! So, get your tickets! And remember… we’re offering a free child admission with each full-priced adult admission in levels 2-3!
